Hospital staff took photos of patient with item in genitals

The Health Department has cited a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center hospital where staff took photos and videos of a patient being treated for a foreign object lodged in their genitals.

UPMC says the behavior is "abhorrent and violates the mission of UPMC Bedford and the overall values of UPMC." The hospital network, Pennsylvania's largest, says it self-reported the violations.

Pennlive.com ( http://bit.ly/2xB1J8n ) reports an employee came forward to complain about the images circulating around the hospital. Another employee told investigators there were so many people crammed into an operating room taking photos on Dec. 23 that it was "like a cheerleader-type pyramid."

The Health Department says the hospital suspended one doctor for seven days and another for 28 days. It is also replacing the hospital's nursing director for surgical s ervices.
